Have you been thinking about using gridwall display panels for your craft booth, but you're not sure how to make them work in your space?
Here are 14 photos of booths that use grid walls for displaying everything from hats, to clothing, to wooden trays to give you some inspiration for designing your own booth.
I earn a commission for purchases made through links on this page.
The lovely booth shown in the two photos below uses black gridwall display panels all around the perimeter of the booth space to display hats and scarves. Brackets with millinery display hooks for holding hats can be clipped anywhere, which provides a lot of flexibility.
Notice the side walls that are attached to the tent behind the gridwall panel. Not only do side walls help to protect you and your products from the weather, they also provide a neutral backdrop for your display and block the view into neighboring booths.
As soon as you start to look closely at handmade clothing booths, you'll notice these panels everywhere.
In this example, the gridwall panel is placed at the front of the booth to show off some of the designer's more eye-catching items.
Notice how the chrome color of the panels doesn't compete with the clothing. Grid walls typically come in white, black or chrome. Be sure to think about which option would blend best with your products as well as the rest of your display.
Here's a triangle-shaped gridwall display rack placed at the front of a colorful children's clothing booth. It highlights the designer's clothing as well as the sign without taking up too much floor space.
Notice also that this rack is well lit with a lamp clamped on to the top of the sign.
Here's an interesting way to dress up your gridwalls. Wide ribbon woven into the panels provides and nice light-weight alternative to hanging curtains.
This setup allows you to display products on both sides of the display panels as this wreath maker has done. Using both sides of the panel for display is a smart use of your space, particularly when you have a corner booth that is open to a shopper walkway on one side.
Plenty of handmade hats fit on this display!
The brackets used are simple and allow easy access for customers to look at, pick up, and try on each style of hat.
While this arrangement is perfect for casual summer hats, gridwalls can also be used in a more formal, high-end hat display. Switching out the simple hooks for millinery display brackets designed specifically for hats would allow for a more formal looking display using the same basic panel.
You can see more hat display photos here including a booth that uses gridwall panels with millinery display brackets.
I adore this clothing booth. If you look closely in the back corner, you'll see that grid walls have been used to create a small changing area where customers can try on clothing.
Two gridwall panels with a bar for the curtained entrance make an ideal private spot that functions as a changing room.
The outside of the panel is used for extra display space.
This setup is such a smart idea!
If you don't love the look of gridwalls, you don't have to give up their flexibility and convenience. Simply hide them.
You'd never notice the gridwalls in this booth if you weren't looking for them. They are neatly disguised behind cream colored fabric, but the waterfall brackets still clip securely to the grid.
Here is a freestanding H-shaped gridwall display at the front of a booth.
Like the triangle shape shown earlier, it is a sturdy arrangement of the panels and draws customers into the booth by showing off the artist's more eye-catching designs without taking up too much space.
